to campaign. super pacs came in but even then it was two to one. so if you are watching tv in columbus, ohio, you see a lot of negative ads. they were almost all negative. they were quite effective and they were about dean and the auto industry bailout and about policy proposals that were mr. rice, but they are pretty set. >> he would raise taxes on the middle class. we can't forget it was on a level playing field until the very end, even after mitt romney which he needed to respond, we're still not on the markets in ohio. we were still being outspent. but that has a cumulative effect. it's difficult. i share the effort in ohio, but i need to find the same thing as true and the other swing states. it's tough to come back from that. back to your question in a paddy to policy issues and translate in the way people care about, i do think it's a huge challenge for senate with just a lot of people in this room share the same challenge to the extent forgetting partisanship. that she believed in policies that lead to more economic growth and more jobs hurts sometimes to find among current employees

that. we have columbus day parades, polish american parades', cinco de am i yo and we even have anglo-american celebrations. i had a reporter say what does that look like? i said you've never been to the revolution meeting? it isn't much of a solution but it is a commemoration. you know, as long as the emphasis has to be on the right you are an italian-american, you are an anglo-american, hispanic american and i talked to somebody from germany last year who chose to become an american and i said why? he said you have so much more freedom here. in germany there are tremendous expectations about what you're supposed to do and how you're supposed to behave and based on your family background. here you are free. we want people who yearn for that freedom to come to the united states. they always have. we want them to continue to do so. it is what makes us americans. we have a question down here. >> mabey if you could ask your question and then ask both of them and we will try to take them. >> i'm a comedian working in the u.s. on an h-1b visa, a process that i wouldn't wish on my worst ene

's elections. the president has stopped in madison, wisconsin, columbus, ohio, and later tonight in des moines, iowa. mitt romney also with a hectic schedule today campaigning in sanford, florida, then traveling to virginia for rallies in lynchburg and fairfax. later he's in columbus, ohio, and wraps up his campaign in manchester, new hampshire. tonight over on c-span we'll have live coverage of both candidates' final campaign rallies. that gets underway this evening at 10:50 eastern. c-span asked reporters from around the country what they'll be watching for tomorrow on election night. here's what a few of them had to say. >> i'm going to be watching the democratic margin in broward, dade and palm beach counties. it is critical for the president that he has very large numbers in those counties. that's where he builds up his lead. in 2008 the president won 14 of 67 counties. so he -- and, obviously, the more populace counties are the ones he won, but he needs to really win big in those counties by several hundred thousand votes. you know, the south florida margin in 2008 was 535,000 votes. and

of in the middle of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area there. obviously, with the cleveland area up in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and the cincinnati part out in the southwest being more republican, ohio just has a larger pool of these swing voters, if you will, and less -- and more evenly balanced between the democratic and republican regions of the state. pennsylvania has this huge portion of moderate sort of independent-minded voters, moderate in political ideology, and they can swing the state either way depending if they bounce back one way or another. for example, governor corbett, the current governor of our state, two years ago when republicans swept pennsylvania as they did many other parts of the state, for example, won every one of those swing counties that i've been talking about with the exception of two. so he won, for example, bucks county, he won chester county, he won lehigh county, he won northampton county, and he won a few on the fringe as well. so i think that -- i like to put it this way, we're not quite new jersey, meaning pretty blue,

. there was a large, large african-american turnout. there was also white liberal turnout. a suburb in columbus, places where the other part of the obama coalition came out. the kristen may put a very small role but it didn't fundamental change ohio, and i think that story was well overplayed. was a way to election? no. it was close. but there were some things that win in both direction. one thing i often like to look at his it happened to the state legislatures. and here you can see some big wave of elections like 2010 for republicans where they gained 720 seats across the country out of about 6500. the early numbers are to be a move in a democratic direction, about 186 or so. but what's interesting really is not everything was going in the same direction. look at blue states, definite movement and the democratic direction but there's also some movement back to the red states in the other direction. states like maine and minnesota, part of new hampshire legislature went democratic, went democratic the. change democratic majority. but republicans picked up legislation in arkansas. big gains in

. if you're watching tv in columbus, ohio, during that time period you were seeing a lot of negative ads. they were almost all negative. they were quite effective. they were about bain and they were about the auto industry bailout and they were about policy proposals that were mischaracterizing that romney's policy proposals but they were pretty effective. >> raise taxes on -- >> raise taxes on the middle class, for instance. we can't forget it was not a level playing field until really the very end. even after the convention when the general election funds were available to mitt romney which he needed to be able to try to respond we were still not on all markets in ohio. we were still being outspent. so that has a cumulative effect. it is difficult, i chaired the effort in ohio so i'm maybe too focused on ohio i think you find the same thing is true in the other swing states. it is tough to come back from that. back to your question how do you take these policies issues and translate them the way people care about, i do think it is a huge challenge for us. i would suggest a lot of peopl
